Edinburgh Designs created the giant wave and flood scenes for 2012 movie The Impossible about the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, staring Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts.
Most of our customers are looking for accurate, perfect waves; however, the director Juan Antonio Beyona was looking for the opposite effect. His vision was a mean ugly and chaotic wave: something that looked more evil than one dreamed up by the effects guys.
On Tuesday 30 October 2012 His Royal Highness Prince Phillip the Duke of Edinburgh opened Plymouth University’s new Marine Building. The Marine Building is a state of the art marine research facility with 4 separate wave and current tanks designed and installed by Edinburgh Designs Ltd.
Marin opens the world’s first wave basin capable of operating in depressurised atmospheric conditions. The facility, which first opened as a depressurised towing tank in the 1960s, has recently had a €17m upgrade to provide it with wavemaking capabilities provided by Edinburgh Designs Ltd.
